Robin's Thoughts on the Lap Band
by Robin C.
Suzette: Your Lap Band Pyramid and diet makes SENSE! I have been fat all of my life, but the times that I have had the greatest success in losing weight have been when I have used an Exchange program. I made up a food diary based on the Lap Band Food Pyramid, and I will be keeping this to help me stay on track.
I was banded a year ago but have not lost weight for all of the usual reasons. I got a fill yesterday, and when I saw how much I weighed, I thought, "this is crazy - I laid down on that operating table and had SURGERY to get this, and I am not making any progress." And it is my fault, it is about the choices I make.
I do wish that the center where I had my band done had more support and clear-cut instructions, instead of "no bread, no rice, no pasta, and only eat 1/2 cup of food." I live in Texas so coming to see you is not possible. But thank you for creating this website.
I will be returning here for tips and support.
